Day 17 - Mini Makeover Day

I don’t know this first hand, but apparently, when you spend a lot of time in a hospital bed, it’s nice to have short manageable hair as opposed to long hair that’s easily tangled and requires extra maintenance. That’s why Courtney asked a friend to come to the hospital and cut her hair. It took a few days to coordinate schedules, but Courtney was finally able to get the hair cut she’s been dreaming of…for the last five days. I love it and she does too. Thank you Angela!

As for the reason she’s in the hospital, nothing has really changed. We’re well into the watch and wait phase of the treatment. Her WBC’s are 100 and she had a few monocytes show up. Dr. Jordan said this could indicate that her bone marrow may be coming back online. Overall, she had a really good day. While the medications make her somewhat loopy, they seem to really help keep the nausea at bay. Unfortunately, she’s not 100% free of the intestinal discomfort. That’s her main source of discomfort for the time being. And one more thing Dr. Jordan mentioned was that she’s likely on the downward trend of chemo side effects as they slowly dissipate from her body. Hopefully that means the worst is truly behind her.

Your haircut looks fabulous girl!
Megan wanted me to tell you that she hopes you feel better. She prays for you every night....the first couple of times she kept calling you Miranda's mom, but she now says your whole name. Hope you are able to get a good nights sleep tonight.
